Latest Huawei phones do not support 5G due to US sanctions



Latest Huawei phones

The Latest Huawei phones from Chinese telecom equipment giant Huawei Technologies does not

 support 5G connectivity as the company continues to lose relevance in the mobile phone market

under Washington’s ban for access to American technologies.

Richard Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei’s consumer business group, said during an online launch event of the Latest Huawei phones on the evening of July 29 that the P50 and P50 Pro, the company’s latest flagship phones, will not support 5G support.

“US sanctions over the past two years have limited the development of our 5G smartphones.

We can only use 5G chips to provide 4G functionality.”

Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 4G chip, the P50 will be available for purchase from September

in China starting at 4,488 yuan ($695).

According to Yu, versions of the P50 Pro with 256 and 512 gigabytes of storage will feature an in-house

designed Kirin 9000 5G chip and will be available from early August.

Both of these models will be the first smartphones to come with the company’s own HarmonyOS 2,

an alternative to Google’s Android.

Huawei says more than 40 million people have updated their phones to the new operating system since its launch in June.

The launch of the P50 and P50 Pro comes a few months after Huawei’s founder, Ren Zhengfei,

called for the company to accelerate the company’s shift to software and diversify its revenue streams

to survive the scourge of Huawei US trade ban.

Huawei’s handset business took a hit last year when the company posted its slowest revenue growth in a decade

due to sanctions imposed under former US President Donald Trump that banned

mobile phones global chip maker supplying the Shenzhen-based giant.

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), the Taiwanese foundry that makes

most of Huawei’s chips, halted shipments last September when the ban went into effect.

Huawei, in an effort to conserve its dwindling resources, spun off its low-cost handset brand,

Honor, and sold it to a consortium led by the Shenzhen government to ensure its survival of sub-brands.

According to research by Canalys, in the second quarter of 2021, Huawei fell out of

the top 5 companies in China for the first time in more than 7 years.

Xiaomi, which has risen to third place behind Vivo and Oppo, has increased its domestic shipments by

35% as it tries to fill the void left by Huawei.

Huawei is now the sixth most popular brand in China with 9% market share, in stark contrast

to the same period last year when it came in at number one with 44.3% market share.

Canalys analyst Nicole Peng said the results were not surprising.

“Demand for Huawei devices is higher than what Huawei can actually supply,”

she said,

noting that Huawei’s shipments have dropped significantly due to a lack of components.

With the release of the P50 delayed by more than a quarter of its usual launch in March,

the 4G version of the P50 will be an important test for Huawei to see if its brand can surpass it through

the overall market transition to 5G, Ms. Peng added.

Data from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) shows that

China has built the world’s largest 5G infrastructure with a total of 900,000 5G base stations across the country.

Smartphone makers have accelerated the release of 5G-enabled phones as mobile operators offer generous deals on 5G services.

Ronaldo Asks Man Utd board to Replace Solskjaer with Zidane

According to El Chiringuito, Cristiano Ronaldo has advised Manchester United’s board to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with Zinedine Zidane.

Following a 4-2 loss to Leicester City on Saturday, Solskjaer has been under greater scrutiny.

The Red Devils have lost three matches in the Premier League.

United’s leadership is said to have given Solskjaer their full support, believing the 48-year-old would enhance the team’s performance.

Senior officials at Old Trafford, on the other hand, are weighing their alternatives and have identified him as a viable contender, based on Ronaldo’s proposal.

According to the report, Zidane has met with United’s management, but he is interested in succeeding Didier Deschamps as France’s new head coach.

It’s also been reported that Zidane was approached by both PSG and Newcastle United, but the former Real Madrid manager declined both offers.
